Hi I'm Richard

I'm from Arizona and I have been a Mormon all my life.

About Me

I am a husband and a father. I am a computer guy by profession. Computers have been my passion for as long as I have been able to get my hands on them. I have always been the guy that people around me ask to help them with their computer. Professionally I have built them, I have networked them, I have programmed them, I have made them do what I wanted them to do. It is so much fun to see a computer start doing something useful after spending some amount of time connecting and programming the hardware and the software.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon but the time came when I had to make a decision for myself what I was going to be. Through reading the Book of Mormon and sincere prayer, the sweetest, most calming sense of peace came over me confirming to me that this is the correct path for me. When life gets tough as it seems to do I know that I can rely on God to send that same feeling letting me know that He is there and He loves me. This simple truth gets me through the hard times and helps me to fly in the good times. It's His love and that is what keeps me coming back.

How I live my faith

I have two of the most awesome callings in the church. Every Sunday I teach Sunday School to the 16-18 year olds in my ward. This is an awesome time in the lives of our youth when they are really starting to figure out who they are for themselves. That they are truly children of God. As they figure out that they truly are children of a loving God they begin to recognize the potential that is there within them. That is so awe inspiring. The other thing I get to do is assist the Stake Technology Specialist. That means I get to use my computer guy skills to make technology work in our area. What a tremendous blessing to see how all the great technology God has given us can be put to use to the benefit and growth of His Kingdom here on earth. Whether it is setting up computers that will be used by people doing their geneology and family history or it's setting TV's or projectors gospel presentations it is so cool to be able to use the skills I have developed over the years to help others come unto Christ.
